The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
We never support or oppose any political party or candidate.
The League of Women Voters has two separate and distinct roles.
- Voter Service/Citizen Education: We present unbiased nonpartisan information about elections, the voting process, and issues.
- Action & Advocacy: We are nonpartisan, but, after study, we advocate for or against particular policies in the public interest.
To conduct our voter service and citizen education activities, we use funds from the League of Women Voters of New Castle Education Fund, which is a 501(c)(3) corporation, a nonprofit educational organization. The League of Women Voters of New Castle, a membership organization, engages in action and advocacy and is a nonprofit 501(c)(4) corporation.
Our Vision, Beliefs, and Intentions guide our activities.
